Here are a few more things to think about when you are deciding on a bank:
1. Make sure you understand that the terms of “free” checking usually include carrying
some sort of minimum balance. If you don’t keep the minimum in your account, then you
will be charged for having a checking account.
2. Use the Internet (bankrate.com is a good site) to find the best rates for banks, loans,
savings, etc. Go with the bank that gives you the highest savings rate and the lowest
loan rates (these may be different banks).
3. Ask your bank for discounts and the “latest offers.” Banks are not effective at
communicating these to their customers, so ask your bank quarterly whether you are
getting its best rates and service.
4. Bypass your bank and purchase inexpensive checks directly from the printer. It will save
you $10 or more every time you order checks.
5. Ask your bank for overdraft protection. If you are a good customer, the bank will most
likely give it to you. If everything is equal, choose a local bank.
Banks want your business, and you can make them work for you—as long as you select the “right” one
and effectively make the right choices regarding your account.
